We invite you to a special evening this Friday with a friend of our organization, Jen Bosworth, as she takes the stage to perform her acclaimed one woman show "Why Not Me... Love, Cancer and Jack White."
Jen is generously donating a portion of the evening's proceeds to Life Matters Media, so this performance is an ideal way to support our work and enjoy what is both humorous and poignant entertainment! Her production details her experience caring for her mother in the last months of life; both laughter and tears are guaranteed (http://bit.ly/1wTeWO0).
We were pleased to feature Jen in our 2013 fundraiser, "Stories that Matter," and she was the hit of the evening. I also appeared alongside Jen during a Chicago Public Radio segment; you can listen and hear a snippet of her show here: http://bit.ly/1wTeAqw
"It’s a show about celebrating life, and it’s also about seeing the beauty and tragedy when someone approaches the end of their life. It’s about taking opportunities to talk with our loved ones about it," Bosworth told us. "I’m a comedian, and the show’s definitely not a bummer – it’s been called a triumph and hysterical. It’s a comedy about cancer, end of life, among other things."
We hope to see you Friday. In the meantime, stop by our website! Here's what's been happening online lately:
